freedom. polls show president obama slipping big in job approval. if that continues, a populace like sarah palin might well emerge as a serious contender for power. that is why the attacks on her keep on coming. the left fears sarah palin. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight reaction with us fox news analyst barack and a hard place duo monica crowley and alan colmes. you are not buying the fear thing? very simple question. i'm a very simple man and i believe you are as well. >> we have that in common, bill. bill: if it isn't fear, why the continuing vehement attacks on a woman who does not hold public office, who lives far, far away in alaska. who has five children? why the attacks? >> the fact that she lives far away and has five children has nothing whatsoever to do with it some of it is sexism. the eva peron. i googled it today. bill: naomi wolf is practicing sexism? >> i don't know what's in her heart. i googled eva peron and sarah palin and hillary clinton. they did it to hillary clinton. they did the same thing. bill: you are not answering the question, colmes, i will

want to go? there is no hesitation by barack obama's political arm, organizing for america, the president's political arm -- i don't think he has another one -- to send out an e-mail calling tea partygoers extremists. this guy,? no, no, misunderstood. he snapped. but tea partygoers, this is what the political arm of obama says, quote "across the country, members of congress who support reform are being shouted down physically assaulted. where? hung in effigy, receiving death threats. we can't let extremists hijack this debate or confuse congress about where people stand. that is extremism in america today. but killing 13 people, no, no, don't get hasty. don't you jump to conclusions here. if there was anyone who could be labeled extremist, you would think it might be someone who spoke of islamic jihad to his fold low soldiers and acted by picking up a weapon and by killing his fellow soldiers with that weapon, but, no, no. real extremists pick up signs. they make the signs with their kids at night. they're nut jobs. they're protesting the government. sarah palin, be afraid.
feeling about the importance of new jersey to republicans? >> i think, look. i think president obama plays less of a role in new jersey that he does in the new york 23rd district or the virginia gubernatorial or others. but i do think president obama does play a role, and it is a sign. look, he got 57 percent of the vote. jon corzine in the summer last 90-odd polls, going back to january, has been at or above 42% several times. they won by 15, and they are scrapping to win it. >neil: yes, but a w is a w, right? >> dip peering into past elections, for example, in virginia, president obama won by six points -- dell the into past elections. let's say he wins by 40 -- delving into past elections. let's say he wins by 14. a swing of five points in the last senatorial elections last fall would have been the difference between republicans having the 40 seats -- a five- point swing towards mccain would have made john mccain president, so if you are a democrat looking at your election in the fall of 2010, and you see a huge swing in the fall of 2009, it has to be unsettling. they could be even stro

" is next. . . . host: in our first half-hour we are going to take a look at president obama's foreign- policy. "the economist" describes it in many ways but uses two words in particular -- subtle and not leave. what do you think about president obama's foreign- policy? for democrats, 202-737-0002. for republicans, 202-737-0001. for independents, 202-628-0205. you can twitter us at twitter.com/c-spanwj, e-mail us at journal@c-span.org. this is the leading section of "the economist." the headline this morning, the quiet american. "subtle or strategic diplomacy" the world will find out with his speech on tuesday. "a weakness runs through his foreign-policy. it looks to many that he has dithered, and of the liberated on afghanistan. managing squabbling officials and twisting the arm of, you karzai has accomplished -- twisting the arm of homage karzai -- hamid karzai, which will he be? clever or week? does this president have a strategy backed if necessary by force to reorder the world? or is he merely a presidential version of aldern pyle"? we wanted to use some of the words from "the ec

. >> are we beginning to see the outlines though of an obama strategy? >> we are and trying to piece it together it's hard to come up with sort of specific numbers, but what we are seeing is that this is more likely to be a process, wolf, than the president coming out and saying we're going to do "x" number of troops, but what he's going to do is set benchmarks or targets for afghanistan and pakistan to meet. in other words, in afghanistan, you've got to -- you've got to be more independent, set up your troops, get rid of corruption. pakistan, start targeting al qaeda, start targeting militants. the big question, wolf, we don't know if they don't meet those benchmarks what do we do then? what's our stick, you know, because we're there for us, we're not there for them. >> it also looks like the administration is beginning to rethink the entire strategy in dealing with the recently re-elected hamid karzai? >> yeah. i spoke with one administration source who said to me let's just call it a recalibration because obviously this is an administration that's been very disappointed in karzai,
that president obama signed last january was way too small. the economy needs a second big infusion. conservative-leaning economists say no. they say it has been wasteful and ineffectual and harmful because it adds to the nation's debt. it says the legislation is helping an economy in a free- fall to grow again and shed fewer jobs that would otherwise have been shed. they say it is roughly on track. they want to avoid cutting teachers, police officers, and other workers. there is more on this story. we will read more but we want your thoughts on the need of a second stimulus package. we are asking you if you think it is a worthy step. you have an opinion on that, please call us. one more story -- this is talking about the jobless rate that was mentioned in the front- page piece. this is a bloomberg news story that you can find in "the new york times." it says that the unemployment rate fell in 10 states including massachusetts, where it declined to 8.9%, new hampshire dropped to 6.9% and west virginia which fell to 8.5%. the number of states with at 10% unemployment held at 14 last month. the sta

there as the discussion here domestically continues as to whether president obama send more troops and whether our allies will contribute more. is that something discussed on the ground there? guest: probably among soldiers, but among afghans it is probably a much smaller group who pay attention to the smaller, finer points of american policy. soldiers have a sense depending on the area they are patrolling, whether or not they have enough people working with them. that is something that is talked about. really, in their day-to-day life in afghanistan a lot of people are not so involved in the particulars of this decision. host: there is also news about the karzai government and its efforts moving forward. have you seen any change on the ground there groundkarzai last week put forth his principles for this administration going forward? guest: not much concretely. there have been quite a few announcement by the prosecutor's office. but when it comes to whether there will be charges, under investigation for corruption had -- whether there will be charges will be quite a take and the president's office denie
